Rebecca Kling is a transgender artist and educator who explores the performance of gender and identity through solo pieces and educational workshops. Her multidisciplinary performances incorporate conversational storytelling, personal narrative, humor, movement, video projection, and more. Kling takes the position that sharing accessible queer narrative with a wide audience is a form of activism, and that understanding combats bigotry.
Rebecca has performed her material around the country: In Chicago (The Athenaeum Theatre, Temple Gallery, Links Hall, About Face Theatre, Center on Halsted, the DCA Storefront Theatre, and more), the 2010 and 2011 Chicago Fringe Festivals, the 2011 Kansas City and Indianapolis Fringe Festivals, San Bernardino, California, and elsewhere.
Rebecca has received praise from The Chicago Tribune, TimeOut Chicago, Newcity Stage, and Centerstage Chicago, and more. Visit her online at www.rebeccakling.com, @RebeccaKling, and http://fridaythang.com
